Meringue Nest Cheesecake with Mini Eggs

Ingredients

  • 100g butter plus extra for greasing
  • 14 chocolate digestives
  • 397g can condensed milk
  • juice 2 lemons
  • 280g cream cheese

For the decoration

  • 25g toasted coconut flakes or white chocolate curls
  • 3 meringues nests
  • 9 mini eggs
  • hundreds and thousands

You will also need

  • 3 chenille chick (optional)

Instructions

  1. Grease an 18cm loose-bottomed round cake tin with a little butter and line with a circle of baking paper. Melt the butter in a large heatproof bowl in the microwave or in a medium-sized pan over low heat. Whiz the chocolate digestives in a food processor until reduced to fine crumbs then tip into the melted butter. Spoon the biscuit mixture into the base of the prepared tin – press down well with the back of a spoon.
  2. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the rest of the cheesecake ingredients then pour into the tin. Smooth the top with a spatula then place in the fridge for at least 2 hrs or overnight.
  3. When you’re ready to serve carefully transfer the cheesecake to a serving plate or cake stand and sprinkle the top with coconut flakes – making a bigger mound in the centre then arrange the meringue nests on top. Fill the nests with mini eggs, an extra sprinkling of coconut, hundreds & thousands and the fluffy chicks.
